The University of Toronto is ranked first in Canada, second among North American public universities and among the top 25 institutions globally in the latest .

91热门 continued to be recognized as one of the world鈥檚 leading public universities in the highly regarded annual ranking, placing just behind the University of California, Berkeley in North America. 

The ranking, the largest-ever by U.K. analytics firm Quacquarelli Symonds, was released June 4 and placed 91热门 first in Canada and 25th overall among more than 1,500 institutions. 

91热门鈥檚 performance was buoyed by its scores for academic reputation, employer reputation, employment outcomes, international reach and sustainability 鈥 a category in which it ranked first in the world.

鈥淭his ranking affirms once again that the University of Toronto provides a world-class education, generates important new research and prepares our graduates for leadership in virtually every field,鈥 said 91热门 President Meric Gertler

QS sampled a broader swath of schools for the 21st edition of the global ranking, nearly doubling the number of institutions it evaluated to determine its published list of 1,500 universities across 106 education systems.

This year鈥檚 ranking also saw a reshuffling among the top echelon as universities from Asia and Europe continued to climb the charts. Several elite U.S. universities experienced double-digit drops, while 91热门 was down four spots compared to last year.

Nine weighted indicators are used to calculate a university鈥檚 overall score in the ranking. Based on a survey of international scholars, academic reputation carries the most weight at 30 per cent. 91热门 ranked 11th globally on that front.

91热门 also earned top marks for employer reputation, which accounts for 15 per cent of the score, based on a survey of employers from around the world.

Other indicators considered include: faculty-student ratio; citations per faculty; international faculty; international students; international research network; employment outcomes; and sustainability, where 91热门 took top spot.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Imperial College London and University of Oxford took the top three spots in the ranking. 

Alongside 91热门, three other Canadian universities made the top 100: McGill University (29th), University of British Columbia (38th) and University of Alberta (96th).

U of T is ranked first in Canada and among the top 25 universities globally in the five most closely watched international rankings: QS World University Rankings, U.S. News & World Report鈥檚 Best Global Universities, Times Higher Education鈥檚 World University Rankings, ShanghaiRanking Consultancy鈥檚 Academic Ranking of World Universities and National Taiwan University World University Rankings.
